Police Close Beaver Stadium Child Endangerment Investigation

Police have stopped investigating a decade-old child endangerment case that was first reported last week.

A visitor reported to police last Monday that he witnessed a boy calling for help from a Beaver Stadium bathroom on either Aug. 10 or Aug. 11, 2005. The witness told police that two adult men then emerged from the bathroom with the young boy. The men told the witness that everything was okay.

Penn State Police Chief Tyrone Parham said they closed the investigation after police were unable to identify anyone who was reported to have been involved in the incident. Parham said the investigation will remain closed unless any new information about the case is reported to police.

“We just don’t have any more information to go on at this point,” Parham said.

The man did not report the incident at the time, and police couldn’t confirm why he waited so long to report the incident.
